    Despite its lack of outstanding attractions, Drayton Manor is a park that has consistently given TowersStreet groups good days out, and I usually like to have a trip there around this time of year. Not a lot changes from year to year, though as you may be aware The Haunting (in previous years a TS so-bad-it's-good favourite) has had an overhaul for this season which will be interesting to see.

    Park hours:

    Gates open 9:30 AM.
    Rides open 10:30 AM - 5:00 PM.
    Extension of opening times have been known if the park is busy, though this is unlikely.

    Adult ticket prices:


    £23 if booked online 7 or more days in advance.
    £29 if booked online within 7 days in advance.
    £39 on the gate.

    From having tried it out it looks like the booking system should accept 7 day advance rate bookings up to the end of Saturday, rather than Friday as you might expect.

    Meet times (based on last year's trip, unless anyone has any better suggestions):

    9:00 AM - McDonald's Lichfield Wall Island, as is tradition. Convoy to park following consumption of breakfast.
    9:45-10:00 AM - Meet at north entrance (G-Force, Thomas Land), assuming the car park on that side gets filled first as usual.

    Who's going?

    Thoroughly enjoyed this last year, but I'll regrettably give it a miss this time around. :)

    Gah, I'd love to, but I'm afraid I'll be on my way to A BETTER PLACE!

    Have fun though!

    Splendid!

    For anyone else interested in attending, I believe you now have about an hour and three quarters left in which to book a ticket at £23.

    I can confirm my attendance. I can also confirm 50% off for the first 6 people to sign up at the Grill Inn.

    :D

    Anybody wishing to attend - tickets are £19.50 from midday today as the park are doing a flash sale.
